    They have boats for rent at Sosua beach. They are chartered but for the right price anything can be had.

    Pop has other options.

    Not big. About five meters long I guess. For some local navigating. Not further than one-two miles into open water. Or less.

    Default cost?

    Do you know what you would pay to rent a boat and driver for an hour at Sosua Beach?

    same over here on the east.
    boats are usually only rented with a driver on,
    too rocky and stretchy to let anybody drive around,
    those smaller vessels usuall use outbord engines, those transmissions and propellers cost a fortune when hitting something.
    if you have a friend who teachs you the basics he may lent you the boat,
    no problem with licenses, not existent.
    happy boating
    Mike

    Help me out please, as I'm sure that your venture is not as nefarious as it might sound. What on earth are you planning to do while navigating locally in a 5 meter long boat without a driver in the unknown open waters of the Atlantic Ocean 2 to 3 miles out?

    no I do not know. that is why I asked my question.

    I do not want driver.

    I think by hour it is much more expensive than for longer term. Boat is cheaper than car and rent a car is $25 per day here.

    joy ride mostly. to please girls.

    not 3 miles for sure. one mile at most I think. for beginning.

    I saw dominicans navigate even smaller ones without problems.
